what happens when we apply force below the centre of mass of a cube ? Will it tip?

• Science -

depends.

Is the cube attached to an immovable base?

Is the direction of the force horizontal?

Is the contact point of the force off the vertical axis?

There are a lot of variables which will affect the answer.
